Summary: The camera takes absolutly fantastic pictures. Unfortunately it is very fragile. We had the camera fall about 1' and hit the floor. After whicht it was no longer functional (reports "Lens Error"). The Nikon repair shop wants $150 to repair it. A bit steep for a $175 camera.
Summary: This camera looks like a little tank, and I bought it to replace a Canon Elph that really had been a tank. I had tossed that old camera in briefcases, backpacks, pockets, and it had always been fine.
Summary: I believe this is one of the smallest cameras on the market with optical vibration reduction (VR). I have a VR lens on my larger camera and find it invaluable and now consider it a must have feature. It also has a very fast startup/shutter response and the stainless steel exudes a quality feel.
Summary: I love this camera, for the price.. had it for a couple months now, and overall it's great for a compact digital camera... only negative is that I still manage to get blurred images sometimes, unless I'm completely not moving or using a tripod.
Excerpt: I've only got this camera with me for a few months and I'm loving it. This camera has 7.1mp, autofocus, face detection, anti shake, and ISO2000. There is a 2.5" LCD for you to look at. The colour reproduction of this Nikon isn't as good as a Sony. I own another Sony T30 digital camera.
Pros: Good color reproduction, Strong quality build
Cons: wrong placing of power button, weak LCD screen
Summary: I bought this camera 2days ago and so far I love it. I needed a new camera as ma other one stopped working while on holiday. Anyways back to the point this camera is fantastic even thou I wanted the Nikon S7c I opted for this one to save money.
Excerpt: I’ve had this camera for a nearly a month now which is long enough to have got to grips with it particularly thinking back on how many snaps I’ve taken with it. Our current camera ,although it's exellent, it is too heavy for me and I find it hard to keep its still enough The Nikon COOLPIX S500 is a...
Pros: exceptional clarity and colour, no camera shake, light ,simple . . . i could go on
